Hi, newbie here
I have already introduced myself in the intro thread but didn't really go into my diet plan, so here goes...
I've tampered around with intermittent fasting from doing research online and decided to try the DD/UD. I found 500 calories too restricting and I became way to hunger on UD resulting in overeating. However, I wanted to persevere with it and purchased the IF diet book by Robert Skinner.
The book had 3 options of intermittent fasting, two sounded fairly similar, you consume 500 calories 2 days a week. The third however which is called the Thirder diet in the book and I've found it online to be called the 8 hour window diet is that you have 8 hours within a day to eat, and fast for 16. For example I have been eating between 1pm-9pm and then fasting until 1pm the following day.
So far I've found this to be working for me, although its only early days, I feel really positive about it about as usually when I diet I calorie count obsessively and it really starts to affect my social life.
Just wondering if anyone else is doing this fasting approaching? And if so how is it going for them? Really wish I had the willpower to do the DD/UD as so many of you are doing. But hopefully this form of IF will continue to work.
